Liz from Leaping life blog inspired me with her Kitchen Capers.
Liz made her own loaf of bread.
I was itching to make my own bread too.
Looking up James Morton on you tube
I found an easy recipe – a mug bread.
The result was fantastic,
and half the bread was gone within minutes.
Thank you Liz for your yummy post,
I will certainly do it for next weekend again
as we were all so impressed.
My Primula was very busy making more flowers.
Look at the difference from my last post here.
This time I made a wind chime
with odd leftover beads
and a twig.
It came out so nice, I did not put it in the garden but hung it in the front room as Art.
To commemorate 100 years of the RAF – Royal Air Force
The RAF sent 100 Aircraft to Buckingham Palace.
My house was on the flight path and I saw most of the Aircrafts flying over.
It was a fantastic display.
My first video shows the number 100 in planes
The second one are the famous Red arrows.
I felt very lucky to have seen some myself!
Here is the whole video at Buckingham Palace as recorded by the BBC.
I have a question to all bloggers out there please.
My blog is over 5 years old and is slowly running out of space. ( free theme)
What can I do to add space? ( not buying additional space though)
Do I need to delete posts, which I don’t really like.
Do I need to start a new one and start all over again?
I have exported the whole lot and got it on my downloads. – for info
Any ideas are appreciated bearing in mind that I am not that computer savvy.
washing up is a chore.
But you can change that.
Make it your daily
mindfulness meditation routine.
Feel the warmth of the water caressing your hands
feel the soft bubbles,
move slowly around the plate,
smell the scent of the washing up liquid.
feel the smooth surface
enjoy the different shapes of the dishes
be aware of the beautiful pattern on the plate,
dwell on the plate for a while,
think of how it got there.
Caress the spoon with your sponge,
feel the smoothness of the cleaned glass,
feel calm, don’t rush,
be conscious of the moment.
Small every day tasks are not wasted moments
but part of precious moments we have in our lives.
Enjoy Washing up!
For a simple heat source,
a Wheatbag is the best idea.
I have two and cannot live without them.
They heat up within minutes in the microwave and give warmth for a long time.
They do not get cold like hot water bottles but keep the warmth of the body.
I love to heat up the bed with them in Winter.
And here is how I made them:
Use some leftover material you like and sew up a small square
like a pillowcase.
( 20cm by 20cm or 8 inches by 8 inches).
Leave it open on one side.
Buy some Barley from the store
and fill the bag with about 1 kg Barley.
Once the Barley is in
sew the remaining side together,
and your bag is ready.
I also made some covers for mine, just like a pillowcase,
so the bag itself stays clean.and
I can wash it from time to time.
When you need some warmth,
put the Wheatbag into the Microwave for 2 or 3 minutes
and enjoy the warmth coming from it
on your legs, on your feet, everywhere.
It can be used for aches and pains too, i.e. like stomach pains, etc
They are very versatile
and can be used cold too.
I have made some small ones (10 cm by 10 cm)
as they fit nicely into a bag into the freezer as ice packs for any injuries.
You can if you like put a bit of lavender inside too and it keeps smelling lovely too. I do like the smell of heated barley though.
Enjoy the warmth!
